Garioch Gymnast, Izzy Tolometti (15 from Alford) competed for Scotland at an International competition at The Bells Sport Centre, Perth on Saturday (April 26).

She was selected for the Celtic Cup Scottish Junior team following a fantastic performance at the Scottish Championships that saw her crowned Scottish Junior Champion back in February.

Izzy was selected by her team mates to be team captain and she led the Scottish team to a fantastic team silver, beaten only by Wales.

Individually, Izzy was the highest scorer in the Scottish team with all of her scores counting towards the team total. She finished a fabulous fourth overall, narrowly missing a podium place by 0.15, increasing her score from last year’s event by seven marks. In gymnastics this is a huge amount.

Scottish Gymnastics also recognised the achievements of Izzy’s personal coaches, with both Janine Robertson and Emily Bull selected as Scotland team coaches for this event, Emily with the Minor (Under 13 team) and Janine with the Junior (Under 16 team).
